The submission deadline for the 2023 SAAG Arts Writing Prize has been extended until Sunday, June 16.
For the purposes of the award, an emerging writer is anyone who has not published more than one piece of writing in a recognized print or online publication, not including student-run journals and magazines or self-published works.
Writers can submit to one or both of the following categories: Arts Writing and the Aruna D’Souza Award for BIPOC Writers (Black and Indigenous Writers and Writers of Colour). Winners of the awards will receive a $1,000 prize, a two-week residency at the Gushul Studio Writer’s Cottage in the Crowsnest Pass, an editorial mentorship opportunity to write and publish a current exhibition review for Galleries West.
All entries to the Prize will be published in the SAAG Arts Writing Prize Reader 2023. This book will be made through the Gallery’s Tiny Press bookbinding studio. Participants will receive a copy of the publication.
This prize is offered in partnership with Galleries West Magazine.
